Caitlin Clark has yet to play a WNBA game in the regular season, and reporters cannot seem to keep themselves from saying weird things to her.

Caitlin Clark made her long-awaited WNBA debut on Friday night for the Indiana Fever, even though it was just for preseason.

She was asked before the game whether any family members would be in attendance, but Clark said she’s “flying solo.”

Then things got awkward.

Before Clark made her debut, a reporter took her by surprise by inquiring about her “bae,” or boyfriend, Connor McCaffery, going to the game. For those who do not know, “bae” is a phrase used to refer to a significant other that is short for “babe” or “baby.”

Reporter: “Is bae gonna be here?”

Caitlin Clark: “Huh, no. He’s working… I’m flying solo. Guess I better get used to it, right?”?

Fans took to the comment section as well as the quotes to put that reporter on blast:

Columnist Gregg Doyel of the Indianapolis Star drew criticism a little over two weeks ago for what he called a “clumsy and awkward” exchange with Clark, during which he made a heart gesture and said she ought to do it to him.

Caitlin Clark scored 21 points in her WNBA debut with the Indiana Fever and quickly showed her talent is certainly going to translate to the pros.

Clark had a good game, but the Dallas Wings prevailed 79-76 in the preseason opener for both teams. Clark shot 6-for-15 from the field, including 5-of-13 on 3-pointers, via

The Fever as well as the league should be excited about what they saw.
